Most people just loves fried chicken; but a Korean Fried Chicken just came to town. Best Restaurant To Eat was invited to taste out the new Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken located at Level 1, Lot 1-43, eCurve Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya
Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken was established in 1982 in Korea and today has more than 2000 outlet throughout the world. The decor is one of a fast food restaurant style; where you order your delicious fried chicken and then enjoy it.
One of the unique point of Pelicana Fried Chicken is the special recipe batter that it uses to coat the chicken; it does not absorb too much oil during the frying process. This helps the fried chicken to show not too much traces of oil and it also maintain the crispiness even after leaving it for a while. The chicken that is used at Pelicana is a premium chicken which must meet the minimum weight so that each piece of chicken is consistent in its serving size.
Besides serving the 5 types of original Korean Fried Chicken, Pelicana also serves burgers too – much of this later but let start with the signature Fried Chicken.
There are 5 different flavours of Fried Chicken that are served at Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken; the first of which is the Peli Crunchy Fried Chicken.
Smothered with a secret recipe batter, the chicken wings and drumstick are firstly coated with this batter and deep fried to a golden crunch and crisp chicken.
Koreans really love to eat their Fried Chicken with a sauce coating; which the first one; of the four flavour that we are going to eat is coated with the original sauce which is a peanut based sauce that has a tad of slight sweetness and very low spicy taste.
This is the called the Peli Yang Nyeom Original Chicken dose with sprinkle of sesame seed. Note: All the chicken is using the same batter to coat before frying.
While the next is the Peli Yang Nyeom Spring Onion Chicken.
From the taste, we could easily taste that wasabi was one of the ingredient used to make the sauce.
Next, we had the Peli Yang Nyeom Charcoal BBQ Chicken.
This sauce has a second level of spiciness in it. After your first bite, the spiciness taste will lingers around your mouth for some time. It has that special after effect. For those who loves to eat their chicken that has an oomph, you might want to give this a try.
The last flavoured sauce it the Peli Yang Nyeom Hot Spice Chicken.
This sauce have a level 3 spicy level; in that after your first bite, the spicy taste lingers not only in your mouth but in your throat. Seriously, I too find the spicy level a tad too high for me. If you really game to try this my suggestion is either you be prepared to order lots of ice water or
for me a Pina Colada which is a Pineapple Coconut smoothies to go with the Hot Spice Chicken.
At Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken, the side dishes that are served is the seasoned raddish (Musaengchae) , Seaweed salad (Miyeok Muchim) and the Korean Fragrant Rice. The rice is cooked with seaweed and black sesame which was a good complement to the Fried Chicken.
For a big family or a group of friends, you can opt to order a special platter which can be eaten either as a 4 pax or 6 pax set. Ordering this platter allows you and your friends to taste the different flavours of Pelicana Fried Chicken and side orders.
For those that prefers their chicken to be eaten as a burger, you can opt for the Peli Jumbo Fillet Burger which has a piece of golden fried chicken fillet served with tomatoes, lettuce and cheese.
or if you not game for any chicken, you can try out the Peli D’Fish Spicy Burger which is replace by a piece of Fried Fish Fillet.
If you are a real fan or just plainly loves Fried Chicken, you might want to go to Pelicana at the Curve to enjoy this delicious Fried Chicken.
